Reduce intensity: Reduce the intensity of exercise to about 80% of the level that gives you symptoms. It is good that you exercise and keep at it. As your muscle strength increases, you will be able to increase the intensity of exercise.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
